Bubblegum Kush is a mostly indica strain with thoroughly relaxing effects and a tangy flavour profile. Created in the Netherlands by Bulldog Seeds, this hybrid is a cross between the fruity Bubble Gum and none other than OG Kush. With a high that leans toward the relaxing end of the spectrum, this is definitely a strain better suited to kicking back than to being out and about. BK’s THC content has been measured at between 14% and 23%.
Bubblegum Kush has impressive buds that are medium-sized and hold a spindle-like shape, bulging in the middle but tapered at both ends. These buds are unmistakably indica, with a densely-packed structure in which the leaves curl tightly inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a dark yellowish-green and are twisted through with brown and orange pistils. Finally, like gum itself, Bubblegum Kush is very stick due to its thick coating of translucent white trichomes. This high resin content makes the bud very difficult to break up by hand.
Kush is a particular variety of cannabis that descends from the Hindu Kush mountains. This mountain range spans the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and is one of the few geographic regions where the cannabis plant grows natively.
Having strong Kush genetics usually means a strain will have a few of the following attributes:
- Appearance: Your strain may exhibit deep green colas and leaves with hints of purple. Pistils (hairs) can look orange, bronze or rust-coloured. Buds are dense, chunky, and knotted, coming from squat, thick plants.
- Smell: Aroma can vary between earthy, floral, pungent, pine, incense, sweet fruit, hash spice, pepper, citrus, gas, and herbs.
- Flavour: Smoke or vapour should be smooth and herbaceous, tasting of flowers, grape, diesel, citrus, and earth.
- Effects: The effects are typically heavy and sedative. OG Kush crosses are usually coupled with a bright euphoria that puts a smile on the couch-locked consumer. Introspection or internal reflection is a common effect of Kush as well. These cerebral effects make a strong case for Kush as a meditative variety of cannabis.
Keep in mind that these attributes can vary from Kush strain to Kush strain. How a strain is grown and its unique genetic expression (referred to as a “phenotype”) naturally affect a strain’s attributes.
